"What is needed for pregnant women and

new mothers is for others to really take time to listen to them

so they can listen to themselves..."

Joyful mama Davenne Essif began her own journey to motherhood in the fall of 2016.

Through her experience of the wondrous transformations of pregnancy

and the thrilling anticipation of birth,

she saw how fear could so easily dominate this time of a woman's life.

Her fun, evidence-based, empowering birth classes and workshops

offer mothers and birth partners

in Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, and the surrounding areas

the chance to meet birth and parenthood with

hope, confidence, peace, and joy.
